I'm Not Dead - Pink

You were born together, and together you shall be forever more.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

Quote: Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Born To Try - Delta Goodrem

It's like I've never seen the light before
Before I see the radiance in your face;

It's like I've never felt peace before,
Before I see the serene face when you sleep;

It's like I've never been bathed in the glow before,
Before I see the glow in your eyes;

Now that I've seen the light,
I feel like I'll be in darkness without it;

Now that I've felt peace,
I feel like my heart will be forever be in turmoil without it;

Now that I've seen the glow,
I feel like I will not live through the day without it;

Tell me whether this is a fleeting feeling,
Or is this going to stay?

To forever bask me in the bliss,
And make me feel humane.
